Securing the grid by moving tech from lab to market

As university researchers work to prevent crippling cyberattacks on the nation’s energy infrastructure, a Pennsylvania-based company will help ensure that the solutions they develop make it to market.

As part of the $12.2 million Department of Energy’s Secure Evolvable Energy Delivery Systems (SEEDS) program, Netizen Corp. will  work with the University of Arkansas, Lehigh University, Carnegie Mellon University and Florida International University, providing expertise and commercialization options for their research on the identification and remediation of vulnerabilities across the country’s energy grid.

“We are excited to have been chosen to partner with these prestigious institutions in the development and deployment of a new generation of algorithms, devices and systems designed to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure,” said Michael Hawkins, Netizen’s president and CEO.
